Fitted Sanzomats MGF speedo cable, I had to recut the thread on the little cast aluminium mounting block from 3/4" tread to M18 x1.5 for the cable nut to fit
Thanks Sanzo

Thanks to my Muslin brothers having 2 days holiday for the end of Ramadan I made a hydraulic hand braked using my ex Jedi clutch master cylinder, (it now has a cable operated clutch)

A hydraulic handbrake, that is a nice idea for the future!
Nice to work on the car with the loose rear end, but how is the rear end fixed?

I had no other option, no handbrake or Hydraulic as I'm using the same Toyota calipers front and rear :wink:

John,
Are you using separate/additional rear calipers for the hydraulic handbrake?

I ask this as you have used an integral reservoir master cylinder rather than using a remote type.

Hydraulic handbrakes normally feed through a remote type master cylinder with the main rear brake line as the feed to the cylinder and the output going to the rear calipers.

Doug.

Cheers Doug, you just spoiled my day :oops: luckily I do have a remote cylinder that could be plumbed inline.
Thanks for making me think a bit more

Did anybody convert the BL rod change to cable operation and what bits were used?

Certainly had the conversation about doing it on the turbo Cox, I think it would be very beneficial.

I can't get away with cables in Historic racing so I have designed a better version of the Heerey/Coupe original using these rather marvellous products.
http://www.igus.co.uk/wpck/2507/igubal_ ... ?C=GB&L=en
Also incorporating some UJ's so it is a bit more adjustable, the weak point is always the "pendulum" bit that goes under the gearbox!
i post some drawing when I've worked it all out!

I made a new gear lever end which is very free moving that is pictured in my earlier posts, but find the rod into the gear box is quite stiff with its new seals, not a nice change at all :cry:

Hi Grizz,
I'm not sure when the rod change box was introduced, but would think for (pre 72??) historic racing you would be limited to the old remote change, which I had cut into 2 pieces in my old Cox.
